Why The Owner chose St John

St John is one of the most picturesque islands you will ever see! The Caribbean water is clear and the temperature is just right along with a multitude of sea life to view. There is a variety of beaches to choose from all of which are absolutely beautiful, and much of St John is designated national park. This villa is in a most convenient location near town (Cruz Bay) and has beautiful views!

What makes this house unique

Villa Venturoso is in a great location as it is located just up the hill overlooking Cruz Bay which is the main town of St John. We enjoy this as we can walk ( or jog ) into town for shopping and restaurants. We are just minutes away from the ferry dock which is located in the center of town. We also enjoy fabulous views from our decks and poolside looking out towards the island of St Thomas.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We absolutely loved staying at Villa Venturoso! It was perfect for our needs! A lot of thought and effort was put into making this the "perfect" vacation home. We will recommend your home to anyone traveling to St. John, and would love to stay here again on our next island vacation.

Great place to stay! So happy with experience.

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay! So clean and beautiful. 10 minute walk into town. The view is gorgeous. Pool got dirty after a couple days, we called villa care-taker and they cleaned it right away. Room size and bathrooms are perfect. Hot tub was broken but we didn't need it. There were plenty of towels. Washer and dryer was SO helpful to keep towels/clothes clean. There was plenty of parking for two large jeeps. Communication with villa owner was incredible, so friendly and easy. She responds to all emails quickly. It was a perfect home for my trip and my group was so satisfied.

Great for families

  • 5 of 5

There were 4 couples in our group and there was plenty of room for all. Bedrooms and baths were spacious and outdoor areas were great. The villa is located within a 5 minute drive to Cruz Bay. Owner and villa rep Stacey were excellent to deal with. This villa would also be perfect for families traveling with small children as all bedrooms have inside access. Close proximity to Cruz Bay would be excellent for teenagers who would not mind the walk. Views are beautiful and you could drive to beaches with 10-15 minutes. Villa is as pictured. I plan on visiting St. John again and I would definitely stay at Villa Venturoso again.

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Villa venturoso, the caretakers, and the owner were all extremely helpful and provided us with a safe, gorgeous, and very affordable vacation! We truly have no complaints. That is the highest praise I can give! Do not hesitate to stay here, you will not regret it. Clean, well stocked, close to town, close to beaches, easily accessible by rental jeep or by foot. The caretakers answered all our questions promptly and the owner was also available any time we contacted her. 100% recommendation from a seasoned traveller to the Caribbean!

Vacation with Friends!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with three other couples stayed in Villa Venturoso from 5/11/13 through 5/18/13. This was a perfect house for four couples. The views were wonderful, the pool was refreshing and we all enjoyed counting the Iguana's in the trees below every morning. The kitchen's were equally well equiped there was nothing missing. The house was beautifully decorated and was very relaxing. We liked the fact we could walk to town it was a hike home but helped to burn off all the calories!! Brenda was great to work with and quickly answered all our questions. Everything met our expectations and then some! My husband and I have visited St. John about seven times and this house was a great location and well maintened. Don''t hesitate to rent you won't be disappointed!!

50th wedding anniversary trip with children & grandchildren!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Ventruoso was an excellent place for our whole family to stay with all the amenities needed for our varying ages! The house was just as the pictures depicted & very clean. We needed a "taller" beach chair for one member of our group & that was delivered before we arrived. The owner was very accomodating in answering my many questions....will there be enough beach towels for 11 people, do we need to bring dishwasher detergent, etc. I would definitely recommend this Villa & was so happy that we had picked it when we were looking for a place. We loved the Barefoot Cowboy & Morgan's Mango & Skinny Legs at Coral Bay. Our favorite beach was Maho & our favorite activity was the boat trip on the Stormy Petrel to BVI, the Baths, & the Indians to snorkel.
